DAC-Anode® Conductive Coating for ICCP
The DAC-Anode is a distributed impressed current cathodic protection anode system originally known as DAC-85. The system has been successfully used for over 30 years with 10 to 20 years of expected service life. The DAC-Anode system is used as a non-destructive corrosion mitigation solution for aging concrete infrastructure such as parking structures, condominium balconies and walkways, and similar structures in a corrosive environment.
A single component, single coat, electrically conductive coating that is applied by brush, roller or spray to the surface of concrete. DAC-Anode is applied between 8 to 12 mils (200-300 microns) dry film thickness. The material dries in 3 to 4 hours and can be recoated in 4 to 6 hours.
A flexible acrylic, crack and weather resistant topcoat for an attractive finish over DAC-Anode WB. The DAC-Anode overcoat is applied at 3.5 to 7 mils (87.5 to 175 microns) dry film thickness and is available in an array of colors to achieve an aesthetically pleasing matte appearance. The material is tack free in 2 hours and achieves full cure in 4 to 7 days.
DAC-Anode Distribution Wire
A tri-metal composite wire is used as the primary current distributor to the DAC-Anode coating. The platinum clad anode wire is placed at a typical spacing of 8.2 to 16.4 feet (2.5 to 5 m) on center.
